    I know where the ∏ key is on my calculator.

    I use my own memory for more important data, like shopping lists and where my towel is.

    Indeed. Is a male truly a man without knowing exactly where his towel is?

    Okay, to the people remembering irrational numbers to n decimal places, why?! Something more useful is the powers of 2 :P

    Just saw this on the bbc website and thought it was crazy! I mean how do you learn something like that considering that the pi goes on for infinity and the numbers never form a pattern? I thought I was doing well when I could recite it to 4 decimal places

    That's amazing, I know it upto ~23 digits but 83,000...

    I learn it in blocks of two digits, generally: 3.141-59-26-53-58-97-93-23-84-62-64-33-83-27-95-02 I hope that's correct, if so I know it to 33, 10 more than estimated

    83,000 is just too much though, I think it was shown that using 37 decimal places in a calculation to do with Pi means that you're left with a rounding error so small that it cannot affect anything, though I could be way wrong on that.
